JewelleryBox

move over costume jewellery

jewellerybox is an online jewellery retailer based in South London. We are on a mission to show the world you can buy real jewellery at costume jewellery prices. We pride ourselves on our range, with over 8,000 unique pieces of sterling silver & 9ct gold jewellery for you to choose from. We are passionate about the designs we offer and think buying jewellery should be affordable, easy, fast and above all fun.

jewellerybox was launched in June 2014 and since then we’ve grown to become a small but powerful force in online jewellery retail sending out up to 10,000 orders a week to customers in over 100 countries worldwide.

little ideas: BIG impact

We embrace technology, smart design and operational efficiency, always looking for exciting ways to reduce our own costs and pass the savings on. We also work directly with some of the world’s biggest manufacturers and by cutting out the boring middlemen and wholesalers we can pass those great prices on to our customers without compromising on quality or design.

the real deal

It is super important to us that our customers know for certain that what they are buying is the real deal. That’s why we are so proud to be an Assay Assured jewellery retailer. By working with the independent Edinburgh Assay Office we can hold our head up high in the knowledge our customers have trust both in us as a brand, and in the jewellery that we sell.
let’s get personal

We love our customers, and when you aren't happy we aren't happy which is why our UK phone number is always answered within 2 rings by a real person. If you get in touch by email we will respond the same working day, and we often follow up personally with you after your order. We offer 30 day returns on all orders so you can buy with confidence. If you have any questions, suggestions, ideas or issues then we would love to hear from you. Our customer service team is headed up by Gemma, and they don’t bite.

Jody Bell

After a lifetime of designing beautiful clothes for herself that got her noticed wherever she went, designer and philanthropist Jody Bell received her first commission to create a capsule collection of glamorous day and evening dresses for a private client a few years ago.

It was this, and subsequent clients that followed, who encouraged Jody to start her own label. As a result, the Jody Bell brand was launched in spring 2016 with a collection that reflected the femininity and sensibility of both the woman and the label.

Jody Bell designs combine timeless style with cultural influences drawn from the Mediterranean which for the last ten years has been Jody’s home. Her expert cuts grace the female form in both the ready to wear and couture collections as seen in this summer’s glamorous day and eveningwear, playsuits, sundowners and kaftans.  Versatile and elegant, with her trademark bell sleeves, Jody Bell garments look as good on the beach as they do out on the town.

From sketching her designs in a scrap book, to dressing actresses for the red carpet at this year's 69th Cannes Film Festival, Jody Bell has enjoyed a meteoric rise. Admired and worn by celebrities from the world of music and entertainment, Jody Bell designs have been embraced by a number of tv presenters including several from the hit TV show “A Place in the Sun” who have chosen to wear Jody Bell outfits on location. 

Jody Bell designs, combined with the inspired work of a talented creative team, have also brought this small, bespoke handmade brand to the attention of a major UK prime time documentary maker and in the autumn Jody herself will appear on our screens on both ITV and Channel 5.

She has also secured an invitation to show her SS'17 collection on the catwalk during the NOLCHA Shows' “Ones to Watch” collective runway showcase during New York Fashion Week this September.

As the collection has grown, to complement her outfits, Jody Bell has added luxury leather bags, handmade to her unique specification in a factory in Gata De Gorges. Beautiful hats, which are fabricated in Pedreguer at one of the oldest hat factories in Spain, complete the ‘Jody Bell look’.

It’s this local sourcing of materials and skills that has bought further unexpected praise from industry commentators who have cited Jody Bell as being amongst the forerunners of sustainable and ethically responsible manufacturing.

Despite all this success, Jody herself remains firmly grounded, insisting that it’s merely the foundations of the brand and that the best is yet to come.

support students by working with their student unions.

About Me
My company was developed through being a student myself and learning about the real struggles
every student faces daily. Difficulties with money, finding opportunities, walking on your own two
feet for the first time; this was truly the inspiration behind my company. I applied my business
knowledge to the issues of students using my many connections in the Beauty Industry which I have
been revolved around my whole life and grown a tremendous passion for. Applying both of these
together I was able to find a unique way to create the company I call today ‘4 You By You’, a company
that exists for students and is designed/operated ‘For Students by Students’.
My passion to create a company to overcome the struggles of students combined with my business
mind and love for the beauty industry would inevitably lead to the creation of a company like ‘4 You
By You’. It just happens to be the first ever student focused unisex beauty website. A niche in the
industries of students and beauty. The basis of this unique creation is honesty in what we are fighting
for and why we are doing it.
